We offer a range of sport fishing charters and will advise you about the best seasonal opportunities to enjoy the various types of big game fishing available.


Paul stand-up trolling During March and April you can fish for several species of Tuna including Blue Fin Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, Yellow Fin Tuna and Albacore. They can be caught by trolling wth lures or by a chumming method. Multiple strikes are a common occurence.

April sees the arrival of the billfish and fishing for Blue Marlin, Spearfish and White Marlin continues through to October. Tuna caught trolling off in 2007 Throughout this period you can also fish for Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Wahoo and Bonito. The Blue Marlin caught range from 200 kilos (500lbs) upwards, some exceeding 500K/1,000lbs.

Many world records for tuna and spearfish are made by anglers fishing off Gran Canaria. An all line class record for spearfish is held by Paul Cashmore from England for a fish caught in the waters of Gran Canaria.
